for the longest time

there were some emotions

I held at distance

not anger

that I was in constant touch with

having no fear of

but happiness

I’d touch that like a tongue

to a sore tooth

and back away quick as

fearful that if I stayed in contact

for too long

I’d contaminate the feeling

would jeopardize it

bring bad luck

wanting to save the chance

for the lift

if I had a bad day

& had to work at changing that

so now I can feel happy

in the moment

the now

actually BE happy

& that worked

well mostly kinda
